Fantastic hotel, extremely clean and full of lovely Austrian charm. Amazing food- all breakfasts and dinners included in the rate. The dinner menu changed daily and the food was delicious with a great variety. The hotel sauna was a great way to end a hard day's skiing. The rooms were extremely comfortable and exceptionally clean. The hotel was very quiet and peaceful. A short walk into the centre of town (5-10 mins) but a free bus if your legs can't make it back up the hill after a day on the slopes.

I stayed there on a tour of Austria with Leisure time. The service from staff in the hotel was excellent and were all extremely friendly. The food served was also of good quality, the rooms were very good and were cleaned every morning. The view from our window was really good overlooking the mountains. The hotel itself was situated about 10-15mins walk up a hill from the centre of St. Anton. This was fine for me and my brother (19 and 10) but may have a been a bit challenging for the older people in our party. My only criticism is of the second hand smoke in the hotel which i found very inconsiderate for the majority of non smokers to have to deal with, and i found it uncomfortable in the evening around the bar area having to sit around people smoking.

We booked the room for only two nights, which was great - because most places require a full week in St. Anton. The hotel itself is in good shape, with a lovely dining room overlooking Rendl. Food is good as well, with a pretty solid wine list with good wines at all prices.

Our room was good enough- and we were there to ski... not stay in the room.

Smoke was the MAJOR negative. The lobby / bar / dining areas were all very smoky. Our room seemed a little less smoky, although it was still not great. If you are unaccustomed to this- or have sensitive eyes / lungs... I would suggest that you look elsewhere.

Also- the wi-fi did not operate as advertised.

Just returned from St Anton, frankly disappointed with this hotel, definately not a 4 star more like average 3 star.
Rooms are average and attention to detail is missing, towels, toiletries very poor expect much better from a 4 star.

The worst thing is this is a hotel for smokers! no non smoking areas anywhere to be seen and the bar and restaurant smells of smoke & even the staff were smoking behind the bar & in the restaurant which we thought was very unhygenic.

The hotel itself is a long walk uphill from town, certainly not as described although there is a free shuttle bus between 9and 11 and 3pm to 5pm.

Food is not bad but limited choice and wine & drinks prices were very expensive, overall have stayed in better 3 stars in St Anton worthwhile considering with exchange rates so poor at present.

Travelled to St. Anton with a Shearings group September 2008. The siting of the hotel, up a rather steep hill did not prove too much of a problem for us '60' somethings, the walk from the village to the hotel taking us a steady 15 minutes. From the moment we arrived, right through to departure we found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Our room, at the front of the hotel on the third floor, was quite large and very well appointed with the towels changed daily as the room was cleaned. Breakfast wasa typical, but plentiful continental selection, the only grouse being the rather lukewarm coffee and tea but the selection of breads and excellent jams more than made up for this. Dinner was the only disappointment, soup followed by a two choice main course and dessert. In the hotels favour, if either of the main courses were not to customers liking they were readily exchanged with ommelete or fried egg and chip and the dessert exchanged for ice cream. We found drinks to be rather expensive by British standards £2.40 for a small glass of mineral water and the swimming pool, which was used infrequently during our stay, was rather cool at the beginning but warmed up as the week wore on. All in all this is a hotel that we would visit again.

Booked for week snowboarding holiday. First Choice. £790 pp DBB. The hotel is up a short hill from the resort centre but we did not find this to be a problem as when heading to/from the slopes the minibus ran every 5 mins, and took 2 mins to reach the bottom of the slopes. At night, with a few beers enjoyed earlier, the hill didn't seem as steep!

Fantastic food especially the evening meal. Staff were all very friendly. Lovely spa facilities- small pool which we had to ouselves whenever we used it. Sauna/Steamroom to help ease the aching joints, again not too busy. Room clean and nicely decorated.

Would definitely stay at the Kertess again as the hill was not enough of a problem and was more than made up for by the quality of the hotel. Saw some other hotels- Moosekreuz was too far from the main centre, Best Western looked great 4* , with leisure facilitis and in resort centre but not available when we were booking. Preferred the more personable welcome of the Kertess and it felt like a traditional Austrian Hotel not just a chain hotel.

St Anton itself had good snow when we were there and we were lucky to get fresh powder and plenty sunshine so perfect conditions. My only complaint was that a lot of the runs were not well groomed and had lot of moguls which as an intermediate boarder I found frustrating. Not likely to return to St Anton for this reason but then there's so many other places to go that I don't tend to go back to the same place twice!

Stayed here the second week in Feb with my husband & his family. Six of us in total. Have to say, contrary to reviews I had read on this place I was well pleased. The rooms were really nipping clean & very roomy which is ideal when you have all your ski gear. My only gripe would be that our room faced the road (but someones had to!!) My nieces had rooms looking over the slopes out the back. The service here was fantastic. By the end of the first night the barman (who was always immaculately dressed) knew our round and had it ready before we'd even waited to be served. The restuarant staff (breakfast & evening meal) well really good too. Attentive and thorough. We even negotiated alternative desserts on a number of the nights. The menu was typically Austrian but what do you want in Austria??
Had a massage a couple of times followed by the sauna & steam when we got back from a hard day on the piste and that was fab!! The girl doing the massages had absolutely no mercy!!!
All in all it was a very good holiday. Any complaints you hear about having to walk up the hill.........?? C'mon, when you are skiing in such a fab resort and all the slopes meet at the bottom there are bound to be places up the hills and to be totally honest we found if we walked up the hill rather than jump on the courtesy bus it really stretched out the calves before they stiffened up.
If it's mental, skedental on the piste day and night you are looking for this hotel isn't for you but if it is genuine warmth, cleanliness and a good meal at the end of one day to set you up in good stead for the next then this is the hotel to choose.
